Should we spend more to stop snow disruption?
Thousands of people face further disruption to their Christmas travel plans as cold weather conditions continue to grip much of the country. Should we have been more prepared?
Shadow chancellor Alan Johnson has criticised the transport secretary Philip Hammond for not implementing the recommendations of a report he commissioned by David Quarmby, chair of the RAC, which set out proposals to prevent major disruption from adverse weather conditions.
However, the transport secretary has asked the government's own chief scientific adviser for advice on whether the government should be planning for more severe weather in future.
Should we have been more prepared for severe weather conditions? Is travel disruption an inevitable consequence of winter weather? Should more money be spent on planning for severe weather conditions? Have your travel plans been disrupted?
